Diving License Malaysia

Diving in Malaysia is suitable for all levels of divers as waters are generally calm and reefs are protected and most dive sites can be accessed by speed boats without any need for a LOB vessel. We believe that being a qualified diver not only results in better diving experience, but can also protect the underwater environment.
